2  Off Topic / General Chat / Why Claude Was Silent (Apparently) on: December 20, 2011, 09:14:01 pm
I've heard a lot of rumors and theories as to why this is, from claims the voice actor quit last minute, and so on. But I read on a local media website an interesting article today.

Over 10 years since Grand Theft Auto III was first released, pioneering developer Rockstar has finally revealed why the game's hero Claude is mute.

The studio says it was only partly to "aid people identifying with him".

"It may now seem obvious that people should all talk in games, but this was not necessarily the case in 2001, certainly not in an open-world game," a Rockstar representative explains on the company's Newswire site.

"We were making up a lot of procedures as we went along, and we decided that the NPCs (Non Playable Characters) should talk and we would have to figure out how to make them talk (using motion captured cut-scenes, something that had never really been done before, at least not on the scale we were doing it).

"So we decided that the game's protagonist would not talk, partly to aid people identifying with him, but mostly because we had so many other problems to solve and this did not seem like a major issue."

Rockstar would later introduce a talking protagonist in sequel Grand Theft Auto Vice City, with players controlling Tommy Vercetti, who was voiced by Ray Liotta.

Just found that interesting.

Stop Driving on the Wrong Side of the Road

A typical day in an LU server.

I have a complaint to make about players in LU.

So often everyone drives on the wrong side of the road on purpose. This leads to a lot of car accidents, confusion, and it ruins roleplay.

In my country we drive on the left side of the road, and I understand that for many other players in Liberty Unleashed they also drive on the left side. But this makes no difference.

When playing GTA, we are in Liberty City, which follows American road rules. You may be asking "why does it matter, its my server" but this is not how it works.

Liberty City roads, intersections, and avenues are designed to be driven on the right side of the road. The traffic light systems are designed for drivers on the right side of the road. You can not drive on the left without it completely ruining the way the transportation network is designed.

It only makes sense to drive on the right, as the NPCs in the game do. If anyone disagrees I'd be curious to hear why. But if not, please, use the right side of the road to drive when roleplaying.

4  Off Topic / General Chat / Exporting to DFF (models) on: November 24, 2011, 10:50:11 pm
I created something in Sketchup, exported it to .DAE, converted it with FBX to DFX, and now I've been tweaking it in Gmax.

How am I suppose to get this file to DFF? I don't really want another god damn modelling programming, 3DS Max looks commercial and Zmodeler is also paid. Its a bit frustrating.
5  Scripting / Script Help / Logo for GUI on: November 24, 2011, 09:38:54 am
I need some simple help. Totally new to scripting for GTA so...

I wanted to put a little logo on the GUI, so I can advertise my LU-related website. A bit like on Lolmortuary! :D how Svenko stuck a little banner below the mini-map. Its literally just a simple sprite.

I read up a bit on GUI functions but I don't really know how to go about doing it; the example was empty and signed off with "todo" haha.

7  Off Topic / General Chat / UnknowmPlayer Crashing? (UPDATE: KAS confirmed crashing servers) on: November 06, 2011, 11:13:28 am
A person called UnknowmPlayer (yes, thats his name, I acknowledge the spelling error hah) has shown suspicious activity. I found him alone on a server, and shortly after approaching him things started acting unresponsive and he went invisible. About 3 seconds after running around I lost connection and the server fell off the master list.

I find him again at the server. Things are fine for a while. I finally go up to him again, I have trouble walking and he kills me. I /goto him. Then I find my CMDs won't work and the game starts to act weird as it did before. Shortly after I find just about every player including myself suddenly disconnects from the server in a similar crash to before, however this time it remains on the master list.

Is it possible for a player to be crashing a server, by accident or even on purpose? It seems a little odd to me, either he is causing crashes or they are following him. Was wondering if anyone else knows this player and has noted similar occurrences? May have been a coincidence but it striked me as very odd.
8  Off Topic / General Chat / Russian Cyrillic on: October 25, 2011, 12:43:59 pm
I was wondering if its possible to view Russian Cyrillic while in LU. I'm an English speaker but I'm learning Russian and interested in seeing it casually used between speakers and / or talking to any Russian speakers (when I am competent enough with it). I don't want to replace the entire language pack or anything, just wanted to know if its possible to see Russian Cyrillic characters in chat.
